Endeavour on Masterpiece. Fourth-season premiere of the Inspector Morse prequel finds Endeavour Morse (Shaun Evans) in the summer of 1967, awaiting the results of the sergeant’s exam and on the trail of a serial killer.  9 p.m. Sunday, WHYY12.

The Last Ship.  Fourth season opens with two back-to-back episodes. Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) is  living a seemingly simpler life, far from the rest of the crew of the Nathan James. Meanwhile, those he’s left behind on the ship confront the next worldwide threat. 9 p.m. Sunday, TNT.

Survivor’s Remorse. It’s all about long-missing fathers as the dramedy about basketball star Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher) and his complicated family returns for a fourth season. Consider this a reminder that This Is Us isn’t the only show that can make you laugh and cry in the same episode. 10 p.m. Sunday, Starz.

Episodes. Fifth and final season premiere of the inside show business satire from Bala Cynwyd’s David Crane (Friends) and Jeffrey Klarik. Matt LeBlanc, the Friends star who last season returned to network TV in CBS’s Man with a Plan, continues to play a fictionalized version of himself whose career has hit a new low as the host of a horrifyingly bad reality-competition show. Meanwhile, TV writers Bev (Tamsin Greig) and Sean (Stephen Mangan) are trying to keep the series they created from being ruined by the boss who’s been put in above them to run it. 10 p.m. Sunday, Showtime.

Nova: Eclipse Over America. Hours after the first  total solar eclipse to cross the U.S. since 1918, the PBS science show offers a quick-turnaround special you won’t need special glasses to look at. 9 p.m. Monday, WHYY12.

Dirty Dancing. Are you absolutely sure you’ve never felt  like this before? You can have the time of your life all over again, as cable marks the 30th anniversary of the Jennifer Grey-Patrick Swayze pairing with a 16-hour marathon. 7 a.m. Monday, Freeform.

The Tick.  Maybe, after bingeing on Netflix’s The Defenders,  you’re looking for a little more comedy from your comic book shows.  Here, a supervillain-obsessed dweeb named Arthur (Griffin Newman) teams up with a boisterous, blue-garbed superhero (Peter Serafinowicz)  in the newest version of the saga inspired by the Ben Edlund-created comic book character.  Friday, Amazon.
